BvB Players Proud Despite Loss

Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller said that they were proud of their performance despite losing 2-1 to rivals Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

Weidenfeller made some fantastic saves over the 90 minutes in what was a thrilling final, but Dortmund's inability to make the most of their first-half chances would come back to haunt them.

Mario Mandzukic opened the scoring before Ilkay Gundogan equalised from the spot. The game looked set to go to extra-time but Arjen Robben slipped through in the 89th minute to roll the winner over the line.

Weidenfeller says that the player are proud of their showing at Wembley and warned that they will be back again next season.

"We are proud," Weidenfeller told ZDF. "We stood up to Bayern and we've had a great season in the Champions League. We gave everything and did our best to win that trophy. But we will come back again."

Sebastian Kehl added, "We played a fantastic match and gave a great account of ourselves. We can be proud. And of course we will attack again next season."
